    difficult child got in a fight on the school bus yesterday. An administrator was called to pick up the 2 boys, and take them to priniciple's office. husband picked difficult child up. He was sitting with a friend, and difficult child said they pull each other's hair in play. difficult child got too rough (big shock) and they ended up in a fist fight. They said they will follow up on discipline today at school. I am leaving town at noon. husband does not deal with this stuff well. I am calling the school, and asking if difficult child will be suspended, and if the answer is yes or we do not know, he will stay home. I have been planning this weekend for months, and will not allow his act to throw a wrench in it. Am I being selfish?

    I'm so sorry! :frown: I don't think you're being selfish at all for keeping your weekend away! I always try to remind myself that I can't allow my entire life to be ruled by my difficult child. You are entitled to have things scheduled in your life just for YOU!

    appropriately parent difficult kids. Go and enjoy! DDD
